Hi! This is a line from a TV series. I don't really get this bit: "Extend an invitation for parley on the eve of his defeat. If he bows to me, he can avoid Mongol steel. Propose a peace and patience to him, see what it gets you." Does that mean, "propose a peace to him, and ask him to be patient"? It doesn't make sense to me. And why "a peace", instead of "peace"? This is what is written, but what I hear is "propose a peace of patience to him", does that make more sense? And if it does, what is "a peace of patience"? It seems to be related to buddhism but is it a set expression outside that context? Does it mean "a truce"? Thanks in advance for your help!
